I just got an email from the School District saying my kids will be coming home tomorrow with a homework packet to be done daily and the School will be closed starting Monday. Unless I can figure out how to skirt the California Child Labor Laws and put two 8yr olds to work in my Suspension shop, it looks like I'm closed indefinitely...

Most of the labor laws don't apply to family members. Not that 8 year olds would be all that good at shim stacking...



I do in-home sales for solar. It's not going well.
On the other hand, my burgeoning life insurance business may well get a kick start from this.

Little worried right now. Not because of the corona virus but because of the affects of it. If it’s shutting everything down I think it’s only going to get worse from there. Work has been slow since the new year started and some days we don’t have enough work for all 8 hours. Talks of layoffs and early retirement deals being worked on so that’s what scares me more then this sickness

My prediction is in 4 weeks or so this will be heading in the right direction and life will get back to normal as quickly as it went South

In that same boat Kenny. I have been buried in work since about mid January and it just keeps coming in. I have 1 big job and two smaller ones coming up right after I finish the one I'm on. I worked a 12HR day yesterday , so I could have today off , and I'm heading up to the big RV / Camper show. Should be a little slow there on a Friday , so I figured it would be better to go today , then tomorrow.

And there goes Jeffro. One of God's own prototypes. A super high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

Heroin and meth are really bad here. I fully expect it to get worse for a while. People will be looking for a cash source of income which means more selling on the streets. Sad times ahead.

I don’t mean this to be rude, although it’s just the truth. One week ago most of this board did nothing but mock this entire thing. Look at how differently people are posting now. It’s unsettling to say the least. We all know it’s going to get worse before it gets better. Not great as a business owner.

I’m just trying my best to be a bit more sensitive to people’s feelings. I am still 100% convinced this is a media fuckjob at the highest degree. SURE there is a virus and sure it is troubling and needs great attention to get it under control. What disgust me is the panic that set in and that is 100% media driven.

Hate me all you want, it’s just the way I feel. And I’m old as fuck so it’s not like I’m one of the youth that have had no issues with this virus. I’m still working, dining out, riding every weekend. Have a full two day/overnight ride planned for the weekend. The roads should be perfect with people huddled in their houses

Well, got an email about my daughter's school being closed starting Monday. My wife is a teacher at the preschool there and now my wife is out of work as well until further notice. Not good.... We have bills to pay and she won't be getting paid.

Jeffro I know this is hitting you hard, the concern. And I truly understand that. What I love to hear from you is that you are still working hard and that you’ll be going to the RV show. Although we all need to be careful, I think it’s very important that if you are not sick or financially hit hard then you need to try and get out and contribute to society. That means admission to the RV show, movies, dining out, whatever. It’s going to be crucial in keeping as many people as possible at their jobs. Have fun this weekend 👍

Damn man that sucks. My wife also teaches (3rd grade) and after Monday next week they are done for 3 weeks. They are trying to figure out what kind of work kids can do weather it be packets or text book work. Not all the kids have access to internet so online work is out of the question. Just a shitty situation all around

They are doing online school work for my daughter. My wife did tell me her directors are trying to keep the preschool open, but school districts are telling everything to close so we will see.

I’m a smog tech in Ca, job security (they still need to get their vehicle in here so they can get their sticker). Busy shop and come in contact with multiple people. I just f*^+king wash your hands and overall hygiene. Not sweating this too much , Life goes on ( except SX) ☹️, The media is really stressing the masses and people are out buying up a lot of stupid shit. I feel bad for those who are affected and those who have died from this virus . Hopefully the Pharmaceutical Industry comes out soon with a cure.

I work in accounting for a big 4 firm. We haven’t been told to work from home yet but I’m guessing we will be at some point. We have unlimited sick days so if someone is sick there is no reason for them to be at work. Businesses still need accounting and tax work so I’m pretty sure business will continue come what may. I don’t work in audit - they are affected more as on site engagements are being postponed.

Millwright in a grain processing facility. (I keep the plant running that puts the sweetener on your sugar free gum) No disturbance yet. Being a food grade facility, I'm wondering what will happen when the virus starts popping up here.

I'm an indie video game developer.... So sitting at home working in my sweatpants for 6 months is normal. lol.

Plus now that kids are going to be sitting at home for a month bored.... ill be killing it. (bad pun sorry)

I went to Meijer Grocery store last night at 3:00 AM and it was full of people buying ridiculous amounts of stuff. I was so affected by it I started filling a cart myself. Its crazy. I bought the last two toilet papers like they were cabbage patch dolls in the 90's.

Im more bummed out about the fact that I bought me and my retired enduro racing father "VIP Feld 450 Main event passes" that I wont get to see now. Detroit is cancelled. It was the one time I was going to put on jeans and leave the house..... bummer.

My daughters school northeast of Dallas is now closed until further notice. I came home from SF to Dallas yesterday and the level of panic here is much here than what I saw in the Bay Area. I went to the store this morning to stock up for the weekend and many shelves are empty. No TP, no water, no cleaning supplies, no meat, no OTC meds, etc.. The store was packed at 9am and a lot people had multiple carts full of anything they could fit. Fucking weird times.

I manage the credit card business for BMW here in the U.S. We're all working from home until further notice. Very interested to see when this begins to affect auto sales here. Unfortunately, I think this will have a large impact on the economy if these shutdowns are extended, which will affect us all in one way or the other.
